Did an exceptional job accommodating my allergies to seafood and mushrooms. Had Holly as our server and she was so helpfull. Then the food was outstanding. Eggplant veal maria, seafood Diablo for my friend. Grilled artichoke and arugula salad. It was cozy underneath but able to have conversation.

It was rather stuffy and hot the evening we were there, it would have been more enjoyable if there were some ventilation. The heirloom tomato and burrata appetizer was great.

We had dinner Friday and again on Sunday. Dinner was so good we had to return! Soft shell crab was awesome. I am a chef and a restaurant owner but the escarole and beans is better than mine. Pasta dishes were outstanding! Salads and appetizers were yummy. Then dessert and coffee... Bread pudding was so delicious as well as the... More

Based upon reviews, I made an early dinner reservation on a Saturday evening. We ordered some drinks, appetizers and an entree. The appetizers were a bit slow getting to us, but they were very tasty. Unfortunately, we never got to enjoy our entrees. Our appetizer plates were removed after about 35 min and we awaited our entrees with anticipation. At... More

A pleasant surprise awaits you in Front Street restaurant. The restaurant is located in a basement on Commercial Street and would be very easy to pass by. The seating is tight but the food surpasses most of the places I've eaten in Provincetown. The specialties range from good old American to Italian, which is my choice. Depending on who you... More

We have been going to Front Street for years, and the quality has always been terrific. Our waitress, Jody, and the hostess, Cindy, were charming and helpful - even though we arrived without reservations this time. I can't think of anything on the menu that wasn't terrific. It consistently beats every other restaurant in town. Really wonderful, as always. The... More
